Alan Pardew has revealed today that Newcastle are pursuing what could be another great signing for Newcastle, but of course the manager would not reveal the name of the player they are actively pursuing, and he could sign in the January transfer window.
Graham Carr – tracking a player who could be great at Newcastle
This is what Alan Pardew told the local Sunday Sun today:
“When Graham targets a player we usually have three or four choices of players Graham thinks could be great for us and then it gets whittled down to two after finance and then I make a call.” “And then I really am looking at the vision of what we’ve got.”
“We’re looking at a player now and looking into his background and character, because we feel he really could be the one for us. Patience is needed sometimes.” “We’ve got one at the moment, Vurnon Anita, a player with fantastic technical ability.
“But he’s found it a struggle so far with the pace of the Premier League, the same as Cabaye and Santon.” “So Vernon is one we’ve got to be patient with.” “We’ve paid a lot of money for him by our standards so it’s about constant patience, constantly working and hopefully at the same time getting results.”
First of all it’s obvious that Vurnon needs time to settle at Newcastle, and of course he and his partner have just had their first child, so he’ll need to settle down to a new way of life in any case, but we still think this lad will become a big player for the club.
We don’t know whether the player Alan is talking about is 23 year-old Toulouse’s central midfielder and French International Moussa Sissoko, who has already come out and said Newcastle play fantastic football, and that he is flattered by the reports that the Tyneside club are interested in the him.
From what we can tell it looks like Newcastle are in with an excellent chance of bringing Moussa Sissoko to Newcastle in January, since his contract runs out at Toulouse next summer.
So we hope it’s another good player Graham Carr and Alan are actively pursuing, because two top players coming to Newcastle is better than just one. 😀
Howay The Lads!!!
